I completed The Jesuit and the Skullthis morning around 9:15am. While listening to Science Friday a few months ago I heard the interview with the author, Amir Aczel. The book is about Pierre Teilhard de Chardin a French (obviously) Jesuit priest and scientist who tried to reconcile faith and science in the first part of the last century. The Jesuit superiors would not allow his books to be published in his lifetime, for he offered a faith based view of evolution.
I would recommend the book for a refresher course on the history of humanity and the still needed reconciliation between faith and science.
